From the Editor

Slice of Ingenuity
by Delynn Ellis
Managing Editor Delynn Ellis reminds readers of the many ways that Glass Patterns Quarterly introduces its readers to new techniques through stained, fused, and mixed media projects. The magazine also encourages artists each year as one of the sponsors of the juried Glass Craft & Bead Expo Gallery of Excellence.

Jeweled Dragon Suncatcher
An Introduction to Stained Glass
Design, Fabrication, and Text by Lidia K. Anderson
A 7" x 7" open diamond-shaped dragonfly suncatcher with clear pencil bevel border. The dragonfly is created with Iridescent Clear Krinkle and Sky Blue Waterglass. A decorative wire hanging loop is added to one corner of the piece to finish. This project was constructed using the copper foil technique.

Snail and Coneflower
Design, Fabrication, and Text by Chantal Paré
A 7‑3/4" x 13‑3/4" glass panel painted in the style of a whimsical children’s illustration. The range from neutral to vivid, saturated colors opens up a world of possibilities to personalize this project through matte and enamel glass paints. This project was constructed using the copper foil technique.

Design by David Lance Goines, Text by Darlene Welch
An 18" x 24" stained glass panel featuring ripe, juicy peaches hanging from the branches of the tree. Careful selection of the glass grain for the peaches, leaves, and branches adds realism and a three-dimensional feel to the panel. This project was constructed using the copper foil technique.

Tiny Tiffany
Design, Fabrication, and Text by David Kennedy
Photography by Sharon Kennedy
A stained glass panel designed in the style of Louis Comfort Tiffany featuring a mountain landscape scene. Many of the pieces are small and can be taken from suitable offcuts. The panel can be set up as a square or circular panel. This project was constructed using the copper foil technique.

Sunset Coral Bowl
Design, Fabrication, and Text by Kathy Griffiths
A 12" free-form fused bowl created with a glass rectangle plus glass strips arranged to form a coral-like design. An initial firing connects the pieces to form the base, which is then decorated with powdered glass and fired again. A final slump firing in a mold forms the finished bowl shape.

Glistening Garden Pals
Design, Fabrication, and Text by Lisa Vogt
A pair of free-form fused glass turtles made from clear and black glass layers covered with patterned dichroic glass scraps great for use as garden or interior home decor. The glass pieces are connected during an initial fusing, then slumped to create a more realistic shape. Fusing and slumping schedules are included.

Scottish Thistle
Design by Denise Rogers, Text by Darlene Welch
A 12" x 12" square stained glass panel featuring the Scottish thistle. Careful selection of the glass grain and colors gives a realistic look, while letting the outer, leafy border of the flower extend into the border lends the panel a three-dimensional feel. This project was constructed using the copper foil technique.

Mariners’ Guardian
Design by Kevin Thornhill, Text by Delynn Ellis
An 18" x 24" oval stained glass panel featuring a beckoning lighthouse. Combinations of blues, purples, amber opals, and wispy glass bring the crashing waves on the rocky shoreline to life. The lighthouse catwalk, window details, and lightning rod are added using copper wire. This project was constructed using the copper foil technique.

A set of fused coasters and wine glass charms featuring shells, sand buckets and shovels, boats, palm trees, and flip-flops. Various colors of frit are used to enhance the look of the design elements. The pieces are fired to a full fuse to flatten, and earring bails are glued to the wine charms.

Golden Koi
Fused Glass Mosaic with Depth
Design, Fabrication, and Text by Wesley R. Wong
An 8" x 10" fused glass koi mosaic design created by sandwiching two layers of clear glass between the background and foreground layers. The background is assembled as a mosaic on a sheet of clear glass, and the gaps are filled in with powdered frit. The entire piece is fired to a contour fuse.

Design, Fabrication, and Text by Kelley Mc Hugh
A 10" circular fused and slumped glass bowl featuring wisteria flowers on an off-white background. The design is added to Almond and Confetti sheet glass with varying sizes of glass frit.
